[artinfo] Ars Electronica 2003 - 3rd Announcement: Conferences (fwd)

[artinfo] Ars Electronica 2003 - 3rd Announcement: Conferences (fwd): "Social activity is characterized by codes-individuals make themselves under=
stood via language and communicate with human faces as their 'interfaces.' =
If the new codes that have been designed and developed for interaction with=
technical interfaces change our social and collective actions or even cont=
ribute to the development of new types of social intercourse, then how will=
this process be played out? Which structures are influencing this social t=
ransformation? And to what extent does the design of electronic devices pla=
y a role in this connection-are users of the new technology becoming passiv=
e consumers or mature, responsible critics of their equipment? The most far=
-reaching question undoubtedly arises in connection with the current overal=
l social situation-are network linkages and mobility enhancing collective a=
ction or being applied to construct an instrument of state control and soci=
al engineering?
